I am amazed at the number of folks that are working during the summer. Guess the economy and dedication are good motivators.

Like Janine, this is the first real summer vacation I've had in 4 years of teaching. First year, I was looking for another district. Second year and third years, I schlepped my mother back and forth to Tyler for eye and knee surgery, and looked for a job with my first district. LOL This summer, my next teaching year is already planned so all I'm doing is reading, writing, and going to a couple of inservices. Everything else is fun, fun, fun.

Last year was my first real summer off. It felt wonderful! I really was able to focus on me and get into a nice exercise groove. I will miss that this year.

Just like BOOSMOM03, I am also taking my first year off from summer work (and it will be tight financially), but after my 25th year, I really needed to sit back and spend time with my husband and visit with my kids. The year was hectic with three in college. I have tons to do around the house-all those things that take time like painting and organizing. So, I am enjoying the "different kind" of hard work. The gardens, the rooms, the books to read....all ahead of me.

I am headed for six weeks in the Philippines. I am hoping to find a place where I can retire comfortably in a few years. Until I then, I will be returning to China for the next school year. Have a great summer everyone.

For the first time in 7 years, I'm NOT teaching summer school, which makes me nervous (income wise), but I'm looking forward to the VERY much needed time to recuperate and rest. I've been nonstop all year round between teaching, master's classes, my divorce, and summer school, and I just feel ready to collapse! I'm going to lay by the pool, swim, play on the computer, take some time to do some planning for next year, and my boyfriend and I will be traveling to South Carolina in July to see his family for a week or so. Other than those, I'll hang out with my daughter and just enjoy the time off!

I will be taking a week long workshop on differentiated instruction. Then its 7 weeks of working at our summer program. In August my hubby and I will be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary, so hopefully we can make our way down to the beach for a few days before school starts again!!!

Congrats to WITTYBRIT on your retirement! Enjoy :)

I am retiring! As of tomorrow I have 19 days left. After nearly 20 years teaching I am closing the door on this chapter of my life and opening up a new chapter. I am excited.
I'm sure it won't hit me until Sept. when the schools open. I have told my husband that I want to be traveling the first day of school, so I won't see the school buses!

Have a great summer everyone, and stay safe.

Dr Oz Sinless banana split
Sinless Watermelon Split
Split 2 bananas and top with 3 scoops of watermelon. Rich in water-content, watermelon keeps you feeling full and also contains arginine, an amino acid that helps your body naturally burn calories. Add a dollop of yogurt; a study shows that calcium and milk fat may reduce fat absorption from other foods. Top with a cup of blueberries; rich in polyphenols, blueberries help prevent fat tissue from forming in the body. Sprinkle with low-fat granola, for whole-grain fiber; and dark chocolate chips, which contain caffeine, an appetite suppressant.

Ingredients
2 bananas
3 scoops of watermelon
3 dollops of vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
Low-fat granola
Dark chocolate chips

I am out on Friday, May 27th. I am planning to spend lots of time on the golf course (I just got a new Sun Mountain push cart) and am going to try for oneTRX class and one plyokick class each week. Additionally, continue with yoga and cardio.

I am taking a class in July, visiting my time share in June, and looking forward to some amazing patio time. It's been a great year - my kids are beautiful - but they are ready for a break and so am I. Testing is complete and we've met our goals so life is good.

For once, I am NOT teaching summer school......WOOOOHOOOOO!!!! I do have a second job, so I'm ok with that. Monday-Friday will be dedicated to losing the other half (35 lbs) to reach my goal weight by my birthday in August. Then, I will return next school year a brand NEW woman, as NO one at my campus has seen me at my thinnest (minus the one teacher that went to my high school back when I was a size 7).

We get out June 30th (ugh), and then I start classes at University of Toronto to get my drama specialist certification until July 28th. That night, we're hoping on a plane and flying out to BC for an island wedding (Salt Spring) and from there, we're flying down to Kauai and Maui until August 14th. Then it's two weeks back to get the my year sorted out and the whole thing begins all over again.

School gets out on June 24th for me...We have a weekend camping trip that weekend at a local campground with our friends. 4th of July we go to my in-laws' cottage on 3rd Lake in the Adirondack Mts for the weekend. Then the last 2 weeks in July we camp at 8th Lake Campground in the Adirondack Mts.

I'm sure we'll have plenty of other things to do as well. My 1st day back to school is Aug 31st and the kids start on Sept. 2nd (yes for 1 day and then Labor Day weekend).

School gets out June 3rd and starts Aug 8th, so it will be a short summer for me.

emoticon I will travel to my son's in Virginia Beach to get ready for the annual 4th of July get together for my hubby's brothers. Our son's will be the gathering place this year. After everyone leaves, I will help him get things packed up for moving. His lease is up the end of July, and he is going to try to save money to move into a house.

Sometime in July I will travel to St Louis to spend a week with my mom and brother. Plus my brother wants mom to stay with me for a while this summer too. She lives with him as of February. emoticon

I have lots of decluttering to do and stuff to get rid of in the basement. My "craft" room is a disaster and needs to be cleaned up so I can work in it. I have a miniature school bus that I want to build and decorate as a classroom. emoticon

No classes for the first summer in years. I have a feeling this summer will fly by.

Tutoring a couple of kids twice a week. Hoping to take a week long vacation with hubby and then do a short weekend to go to a car show in Milwaukee. School starts late this year due to construction so for the first time in 33 years of teaching I will have 3 months of vacation. I will work at school at least twice a week when I am home. Lots to do. Want to try some new things this next year. Hate to get into a rut.

Master's classes in June, then going to Florida over July 4th. Teaching extended school year for two students in July and Early August, and a second trip to Florida with just dh at the end of July. Kids have soccer camps, gymnastics camps, etc. and tryouts for ds high school soccer will be the first week in August, followed by practices until school starts.

Hmm, my summer is looking as packed as my school year! Hope to find time to relax and work on some projects around the house.

I think I've lost my mind. How could I forget that I'm going to Phoenix in Aug. for my son's graduation. I also spend 4 days in MO with a friend every summer.

I'll be teaching summer school (it's actually a break for me and good money), going to a friend's wedding, and then going to New Mexico to keep my 5-year-old nephew while his parents take a short vacation (he has autism and they don't like to leave him with just anyone - I'm honored they trust me enough to keep him, even though I do have a doctorate in special education!). I also need to do some major house cleaning and organization. Fun stuff!

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.

I hope to sell my finished book and get a long way on finishing another I've started plus the reading stack is piling up, the flowerbeds call, and eBay beckons.

Do you have anything special planned for the summer vacation?

I have DH's family reunion in mid-June and grandson coming for a week in July. Have just started scrapbooking (i know way behind the trend) and looking forward to doing that.

How about you?
